Fortnite Rift Tour Ariana Grande Concert Details
The Fortnite Rift Tour has been in the rumour mill for quite some time, but it's finally official; there will be a Fortnite Ariana Grande concert. She follows in the footsteps of some huge names in Fortnite, like Marshmello, Post Malone, and Travis Scott, but the Fortnite Ariana Grande concert will undoubtedly be the biggest event yet. But what are all the details for this huge event, like the Fortnite Rift Tour times?
Marshmello and Travis Scott have shown us how great these in-game concerts can be, but from the sound of it, the Fortnite Rift Tour may be an even bigger spectacle... at least until Fortnite season 8, anyway. Phil Rampulla, Head of Brand at Epic Games, described the Rift Tour as a “musical journey that players can experience, feel, and join alongside their friends.” Ariana Grande herself made a statement as well, claiming that she can’t wait to join her fans and see all of the reactions to such an “unforgettable, magical journey to new realities.”
From the sound of things, the Fortnite Ariana Grande concert in the Rift Tour is going to be one event you don’t want to miss. Prepare for the virtual concert of a lifetime as we run through the Fortnite Ariana Grande times, how to attend, the Fortnite Ariana Grande skin, and more Fortnite Rift Tour related news and information.
Fortnite Rift Tour Times And Dates
The Fortnite Rift Tour will debut on Friday, August 6 at 11PM BST. After that, there will be multiple encore shows with the final Fortnite Ariana Grande concert occurring at 11PM BST on August 8.
Epic Games scheduled these showtimes in hopes of accommodating players of all schedules and regions. However, players can attend as many of the showtimes as they’d like. Your region does not lock you into a specific concert start time. American players can attend the Europe and Middle East shows and vice versa. And there will be no need to switch matchmaking regions either!
The schedule Fortnite Rift Tour Ariana Grande concert times are as follows:
Friday, August 6
- The Americas: 11PM BST
Saturday, August 7
- Global: 7PM BST
Sunday, August 8
- Europe and Middle East: 3PM BST
- Asia and Oceania: 5PM BST
- The Americas: 11PM BST
How To Attend The Fortnite Ariana Grande Concert
To attend the show, players will need to make sure they log into Fortnite at least an hour before the scheduled showtime. Past live events like The Device showed us that even 30 minutes isn’t always enough time to secure a spot in-game. Players that don’t reserve their spot at least an hour in advance are at risk of missing the Rift Tour concert.
The Rift Tour playlist will appear in-game 30 minutes before each show. From here, concert-goers can hop into a match and wait for the event to begin.
The Rift Tour tab on Fortnite’s main menu allows players to “save the date” and check off which showtimes they hope to be at. It’s important to note that this is not an RSVP. This is simply a way of letting your friends know which showtimes you plan on attending so that you all can link up at the concert.
Fortnite Rift Tour Artist Lineup and Setlist
While Ariana Grande is the headliner, the Fortnite Rift Tour will have features from other supporting artists. According to famed Fortnite leaker, HYPEX, Ariana Grande’s show is just phase one of the Rift Tour. This news all but guarantees that other artists will have their own Rift Tour concerts soon.
As for the event this weekend, no lineup or setlist has been revealed. We know Ariana Grande is the main draw, but there may still be surprises to come. One of the confirmed songs is "Juice Wrld - Come & Go ft. Marshmello". This track has nothing to do with Ariana Grande, further affirming that features from other artists will also be performed at the Rift Tour concert.

The Ariana Grande skin will come in multiple styles and includes an adorable pet pig back bling called Piggy Smallz. The Ariana Grande outfit also comes with a signature emote. There could be an Ariana Grande-themed pickaxe or glider still in secret, but these are the confirmed items as of now.
